Description

At Reflections Nursery & Forest School in Worthing we make a point of listening to children's theories and giving them the opportunity to test their hypotheses because we believe that's the way they learn. (We're happy to talk about this for hours if you'll let us).

Our nursery is in a lovely Regency building on three floors with loads of space, lots of light and a huge garden. We work hard on making the nursery environment inspiring by offering open-ended, natural and reclaimed resources for the children so they can add their imaginations and creativity. You'll see what we mean when you visit.

The nursery was rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted at our last three inspections in 2010, 2013 and 2014. We won Worthing Business of the Year in 2010/11 and Southern Business of the Year in 2011/12. We also won UK Nursery of the Year in 2009/10 (the only time we've entered the competition) and we were really pleased with what the judge, Wendy Scott had to say about us:

"Children have genuine choices and a lot of scope for exploration and expression in an engaging, beautiful and well-cared-for environment. Staff take children's ideas seriously, giving them plenty of time. Reflections is an exciting place to be in relation to the physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing of children and adults."
Wendy Scott - Former adviser to the Department for Education & Skills

Our ongoing edible garden project is run by our in-house horticulturalist, who supports children's understanding of nature whilst they grow fruit and vegetables for the nursery. We also offer a forest school programme to all children over three years old and have a full-time artist working with the children to support their creative expression.

Reflections Nursery

A very forward-thinking Nursery

Our son Joshie very much enjoyed his years at Reflections, and especially Forest School. Apart from giving him the chance to socialise with his peers, he learnt a great deal, and developed into a very well rounded, inquisitive boy. Excellent preparation for his early school years and the future.

We would definitely recommend Reflections to anybody.

Fantastic

Our daughter went to Reflections for 2 years and only left because we moved away. She started at 9 months old in the baby room and I would say she enjoyed every minute of it. The staff throughout the nursery are brilliant and I always felt comfortable to leave our daughter there. They have got a great outdoor area which the children love and most important the practitioners seem to actually care!!! Very important to us. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery to anyone.

Reflections, An Excellent Nursery

Both my son (now 7yrs) and daughter (5yrs) attended reflections part time from the age of about 11 months. During this time, I have seen the nursery continually improve facilities and opportunities for the children to develop and learn. Their Garden is amazing and both my children really enjoyed forest school. The staff are incredibly friendly, taking the time to get to know the children and really listening to them. From my experience, I would not hesitate to recommend Reflections Nursery. Both my children have left confident and settled very quickly into school.

I really recommend this nursery

My son started at Reflections at 10 months old and has just left there aged 4 for school. He has skipped straight into school without a backward glance which is a testament to the confidence he has gained at Reflections. I choose this nursery because I liked the fact that there was no separate room that the babies slept in they all stayed in the same room where they played. It was very open which felt safer to me than some nurseries that had small dark rooms where the babies slept in on their own. I also liked that there were baskets everywhere with things like pine cones and everyday objects to stimulate them and their imagination. They have different rooms set up for different activities like a sand room, dressing up room, art room where when he joined they were making perfume! The garden also is amazing. They grow their own vegetables and play outside rain or shine. He even made chutney one day! Even the babies go outside which is so important I think.

I also recommend Forest School which is a chance for the children to go to the woods to learn and play. It broke up the full day my son was there nicely and he loved it.

The staff are friendly and I always felt relaxed they were looking after him. The couple of times he was unwell they phoned me immediately and I know he was safe. He loved going which I think says it all. I now have another son which I will be sending there soon as well.

Excellent Nursery

My son has recently left Reflections to attend school having been there since he was 10 months old. I cannot praise the staff enough for the care they have shown him and he has adored them in return. The activities on offer have been wonderful and the garden is a great space for children with a lot of opportunity for fresh air and exercise. Forest School is excellent and my son grew in confidence from his weekly trips to the woods.
I would highly recommend Reflections to others, they are constantly striving to improve the experience of the children who attend and I am confident that they will continue to do so in years to come. My son was very sorry to leave.
